Early November 1939 puchased by the British Admiralty as 1 of 7 tugs to meet the need for minesweepers, including 6 from Belgium at a total estimated cost at £88,000
68 years ago today Solitaire sank off the beaches of Normandy during the atrocious weather which afflicted the region from 19-21 June and when many smaller craft were lost to the elements.
